I'm not arguing against that - we absolutely should have an AppDB and a
bugzilla link in the corner. They're very useful.
I'm just saying such a link doesn't have to also be among the large,
friendly buttons at the left, which is where a complete newcomer's eyes
are drawn. A newcomer who doesn't know what they're looking for, and
thus probably doesn't want AppDB or Bugzilla yet (but does probably want
About, Download, or Support)
